I had been waiting for DJI to drop the prices to sub 300 level for the last year or so. I happen to stumble upon the refurb deal 2 weeks ago and **** this thing is fun. I must say it's kinda addicting, after realizing the limitations without a controller.. I bought a controller. After wanting to fly for more than 8-9 minutes, I picked up 2 more batteries.. After waiting 3+ hours to charge 3 batteries, I picked up a multi quick charger... So finally I don't have anywhere to put all this gear when I go for a hike.. Lets buy a carrying case. (should have bought a backpack case) **** this is getting expensive I'm up in northeastern vermont, I'm really hoping to get this on a mountain when I skin up this upcoming winter. (as drones are not allowed on resorts.. nothing about backcountry though!) I'm still very skiddish about where I fly, how high I take the drone, not around people etc. Hoping that wears off but not too much as I don't want to lose this thing.
